like a wii collector out there or some eccentric baller buying up all the wii's all over the world? I see them selling 4 to 1, 6 to 1, 7 to 1, and I wonder who the he77 is buying all of these machines. I consider myself a pretty social extrovert, gamer and entertainer, and I don't see people falling over themselves for this machine in my circles. What an amazing feat, the little machine is pulling off. The gaming world has been turned upside down and really has me scratching my head. Good job Reggie; although I should say Miyamoto since it was his idea anyway.

Nintendo Wii? Wierd.

I'm pretty sure that Square's Iwata said that both the Xbox 360 and the PS3 were mismatched. Knowledge of which could kill any potential flame war...

Misquote though:

"Square Enix chief this week called the PS3 and Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 mismatched for today's market"

And it isn't mismatched, the price is mismatched for the mass of people. Those buy anything that gets close to 200 Euro/dollar. For example the Wii.

Just wait. Fall/Winter the 360 core will fall to 199 Euro, the Premium to 299 Euro, the Elite to 379 Euro or so

No dude. I don't twist. I quote that he called the PS3 also mismatched. In the title the 360 is only mentioned. So I put it up RIGHT

The 360 though will have it's price sooner on 200 Euro/Dollar then the PS3 will. You can't argue that. The PS3 started at a too high price point and isn't able to get down as fast as the 360 can.

Thus: I am right on that.

HE was talking about the price of both systems...vs the wii..either way the playstion brand is strong..

Mart said "Just wait". HAHAHA.

I'm so glad you're happy with the cheaper product.

The 360 reaches $200...then what?
The PS3 price gets lowered...then what?
The 720 comes out...then what?
The PS4 comes out...then what?
We all die...then what?

You're just too cute.
